Why Family Camp?


Most every American family would agree that distractions are a big problem when seeking to cultivate intimate family unity. Electronic devices, social media, school clubs, athletic practices, youth group, church attendance, and service opportunities can all distract a family from a deep community under the headship of Christ.

Maranatha Camp & Retreat Center is a place to get away from the distractions of daily living to quiet down, hear God speak, and make life-changing decisions.

Our Family Camp is specifically designed to give families a place to spend time having fun and learning together without the usual distractions of daily life. Parents don’t have to cook, clean, or provide entertainment.  Kids have the space to run, swim, play, and learn outdoor skills.  Everyone is given the opportunity to worship God and learn more about Him together and with like-minded families.

We hope you will prayerfully consider a meaningful getaway at Maranatha Camp & Retreat Center.

“Our family has loved going to Family Camp the past three summers! The kids ask each year if we’ll be able to go back. They especially love that we get to be outdoors together and eat all our meals together all week. It’s so great to be able to just spend time together without all the electronic distractions. Last summer, my husband and son got to go fishing together. A first for both! They loved it so much, that they went back every afternoon the rest of the week while our girls and I spent the afternoons playing on the waterfront and climbing the rock wall.”     Lissa Zuniga

“Our family really enjoyed going to Family Camp the past 2 years. It was great to get away from the busyness of everyday life and to have a break from technology. We loved being able to spend so much time outdoors together, and that there were activities to interest all of us – from our daughter who loves crafts – to our boys who enjoyed all the water activities – to afternoon free time for dad and mom to relax or maybe even catch a nap. And did I mention no cooking?!”     Liza Smith


We want to make things as simple as possible for you and your family, so we have made our rates inclusive, with the exception of our Clay Shoot Range and Paintball. You pay one price to get your meals, lodging, and almost all of the activities!

Our activities include a 40 acre lake that offers power boat tubing, canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, paddle boards, water toys, swimming, a 75 foot waterslide, and a blob. If spending time on the lake doesn’t pique your interest, we also have a swimming pool, where you can enjoy a game of water basketball, use the diving board, and waterslide. We have a regulatory sized gym where you can play a game of basketball, volleyball, dodgeball, or even soccer, and don’t forget our 3 story indoor climbing wall! If you are looking for more, we also have a low ropes/team building course and two paintball fields (Woodsball and Speedball). Even more yet, we have numerous outdoor playgrounds, miniature golf, and an outdoor volleyball court.
